Wild mustangs made me a writer.

Okay, that may be a bit of an oversimplification since I was already scribbling stories long before I adopted my first mustang, but it is true to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if wild horses hadn’t carried me here.

The first was a copper-colored mare terrified of people and fiercely defensive, but once I’d gained what trust she could offer she revealed a sweet spirit and a gentle heart. Working with her taught me nuances of equine expression and subtleties of body language I’d never imagined before, so I adopted two more mustangs a few years later.
